In the vastness of the universe the entire milky way galaxy hardly registers among the billions of galaxies so one lump of rock circling one of the billions of stars in that mote of a galaxy is nothing. On the universal scale humans are smaller than atoms compared to earth.
Let me put it into proportion for you.
On this lump of rock we call earth humans are the (allegedly) most intelligent of around 8,7 million animal species - nothing
Or
There are myriad more suns in the billions of galaxies in this universe than there are grains of sand on every beach on earth - nothing
Or
Take all the space out of all the atoms of all the 7 billion people on earth and you wind up with an ultra dense object about the size of a sugar cube - nothing
So you are correct, albeit for the wrong reason, humans are nothing - Get that?
Your concept of fails to take into account the relativity of size. Humans compared to the macro and microscopic world are humongous.

Calling people nothing is also a strictly relative concept...you can state "people in size, are nothing compared to to the size of the Universe."

Or people in size are humongous, compared to the size the microscopic Universe.

Size is a matter of perspective...it is not absolute, as you imply.

WHO?
Your next post however says that WHO can not be defined notr understood.

Well untill you guys (old celtic for intelligent(s)) figure it out, we just take it that the elements on earth are nothing that does not come from heavy stars exploding first and then imploding.
Since we can find no other elements. And what we have is similar to what we find out there.

So you look for one huge step but fail to connect the dots in the meantime.

Nice try. Human beings are very good at deluding themselves and backward rationalizing when there wrong. Fact is prayer like god is indistinguishable from when it works and from when it doesn't. Sorry but be don't see massive documentation for when it works.
When it supposably does work its usually either laziness on the persons part, like when someones cancer goes away for no known reason, there to lazy to look for a more plausible alternate explanation, or *any* other explanation. But seeing as they have a vested interest towards there wishful thing that's understandable.
Or its the payer got answered, but in a very round about sort of way. Ie: backward rationalizing. "well I wanted A, but I got c.5...it works!!!"
But the greatest part,(and you demonstrated this in your post) the fail safe you install yourselves for when it doesn't work is...
<quoted text>
Oh the convenience!!
See this way yall can keep lying to your selves and never be the wiser.
"did your payer work??.
Naw, Shiva works when she wants to."
See if payer worked, or er didn't, at least the god in question could have his Secretary send a "denial of application" paper in the mail to show when it didn't work. Plus it would give us metric to gauge prayer from when it works and when it doesn't.
Sorry but payer is nothing more then "mere wishes".
Actually you are the one with the psychological fail safes...calling someone delusion, because you fail to grasp certain concepts is just one of many.

Also from The Perimater Institute (dr. Param Singh: on the very small scale gravity repulses instead of attracts.)

Forget solid, liquid, and gas: there are in fact more than 500 phases of matter. In a major paper in today's issue of Science, Perimeter Faculty member and the BMO Financial Group Isaac Newton Chair in Theoretical Physics at Perimeter Institute Xiao-Gang Wen reveals a modern reclassification of all of them.

ok i made a mistake, then WHAT permited the happening these reations
Laws of physics, chemistry.
Start tiny and simple and it build by making connections that influence the environment.
Vacuum and branes, geons, would be one theory.
Or maybe we are an universe in a universe.
Or parallel multiverses.
Huge black holes interacting again(i've discounted that one since black holes do have limits and emit matter.)

There are a lot of theories with their mathematics.
But first we have to find the working principles, try to falsify all those theories.

Like establising that there are 500 forms of matter.
Well also that will be reviewed.
Or whether the fabric of the universe has some sort of foamy structure.

As an aside:
What makes god problematic is the tendency of believers to ever extend god. God of the gaps.
From tribal, it goes to empire, then the world, followed with the milkyway. When we could look beyond the milkyway suddenly god get's bigger too as well as causal.
So what if there are multiverses each in their own parallel bubble, is it the same god too?

Did you know the word hydrogen was derived from the french word/suffix 'hydro-gene'
maybe that's a clue.
Sure.

Means "water-maker" - if you burn it, you get water.

Clue to what?

wit (n.)
"mental capacity," Old English wit, more commonly gewit, from Proto-Germanic *witjan (cf. Old Saxon wit, Old Norse vit, Danish vid, Swedish vett, Old Frisian wit, Old High German wizzi "knowledge, understanding, intelligence, mind," German Witz "wit, witticism, joke," Gothic unwiti "ignorance"), from PIE *woid-/*weid-/*wid- "to see," metaphorically "to know" (see vision). Related to Old English witan "to know" (source of wit (v.)). Meaning "ability to make clever remarks in an amusing way" is first recorded 1540s; that of "person of wit or learning" is from late 15c. For nuances of usage, see humor.
A witty saying proves nothing.[Voltaire, Diner du Comte de Boulainvilliers]
wit (v.)
"know," Old English witan "to know," from Proto-Germanic *witanan "to have seen," hence "to know" (cf. Old Saxon witan, Old Norse vita, Old Frisian wita, Middle Dutch, Dutch weten, Old High German wizzan, German wissen, Gothic witan "to know"); see wit (n.). The phrase to wit, almost the only surviving use of the verb, is first recorded 1570s, from earlier that is to wit (mid-14c.), probably a loan-translation of Anglo-French cestasavoir, used to render Latin videlicet (see viz.).

Ah someone who knows much sees much. In greek to see is also used as allusion to intelligence.
They even had a short form. Like we use acronyms.
Used f.i. where later jesus was inserted in bibles.
The same use of see as know in the hebrew, f.i. Abram saw more then most, the mindseye.

Yes. That 'nothingness' is essential for the process.

Your ignorance of science is not proof of your deity.

Go to your local library* and get a copy of "We Need To Talk About Kelvin", by science writer Marcus Chown.

It's a good primer on astrophysics, but don't be frightened - it's virtually in baby-talk.

flirting as stroke of wit, i would define as a prank (dutch streek) of seeing.

It's not like a coupe de foudre: lightning stroke when peole fall madly in love.

You suppose the same when the creation account is interpreted as the world was created from nothing.
I still have to find the first belever that ever wondered about that being true. Or what it was and where they left god in the first place.
What is nothing! How have you defined it KD?

No i'll say it was nicked from a government truck.

Incomparable, and the way i know deserts is that you frankly stumble over people.
First nothing and 5 minutes later you have an entire village staring at you.

In Nostre Aetate the 1950 papal writ to improve relations between all faiths and the later follow up of 2005, it is noted that relations with muslims and the other faiths are excellent.
'The muslims have cordially given us the use of their deserts for the dead after judgement day.'

We know what side you're on but Science wants answers. To fully understand everything is to be somewhat on all sides. We can't dismiss something that evidently has a purpose. For example, you keep talking about aliens but have you figured out why they create esoteric symbols such as the Tree of Life on crop circles? What is the connection they're trying to make?
Crop circles are human humor hoaxes. Tin foil hats are human brain protectors. Might as well add the Bible and monkey DNA, its all relative.
